    Visit dnsstuff.com. I do believe they allow you to check an IP in most of the major spam databases.

    It seems that their website is currently down, so you may have to try later. It was working this morning though.

    usually the return mail will have an error message telling you what list is blocking the iP.

    Do note that some of the lists block chunks of innocent IPs. So no spam may have ever originated from your hosting service.

    What's your IP ?

    To find out IP information just use dig hostname.com on a linux box. Once you find out the IP address you can do a search in arin to find the netblock owner.

    http://rbls.org might be of some use to you, though it seems to be less than responsive right now. Try it later perhaps.
